2015. Performative activity.
The notion of hair as a base element intrinsic to identity from DNA extraction to the exposure of self sitting in a hairdresser’s chair. But also the relationship of identity and trust. The trust that is placed in subjecting oneself to the hands of a hairdresser. The trust in the credentials of the person posing as a hairdresser.
